Rhys Wakefield: Filming 'Sanctum' was Pure Escapism

Rhys Wakefield: Filming 'Sanctum' was Pure Escapism

Meet Rhys Wakefield!

The 22-year-old Aussie actor stars in Sanctum, a 3-D underwater adventure under the watch of executive producer James Cameron. Here’s what Rhys had to share about the experience with L.A. Confidential magazine:

On preparing for his role as an underwater cave explorer:“The role was incredibly physical. At one point, they had me swimming for two hours a day, doing breath holds, rock climbing, fighting and ropes training as well as keeping up with a regular gym regime.”

On the scariest part about working with James Cameron: “Doing night shoots in a big outdoor tank!”

On the best part: “Pure escapism. It was a lot of fun immersing myself – literally – in a completely foreign underwater environment. I’m excited to see how audiences react to the space, especially with the addition of 3-D.”

Also pictured inside is a shot of Rhys from V magazine, where he was named one of the stars of New Hollywood!

@dawn: …but this one is actually a good actor. Has anybody seen The Black Balloon? He was fantastic in that.

OMG I loved him on Home and Away.

What is it with the obsession Americans have with Austrailian actors? I don’t get it?
